The purpose of this assignment is to read, summarize, and evaluate a scholarly text. You will be evaluating “Female Self-sacrifice in Kate Chopin’s The Awakening: Conflict and Context.” You will find a link to it on Blackboard under Assignments. You can also find this article through Academic Search Premier, a NKU database. The paper must be 2-3 pages in length and include in-text citations (page numbers). The writer should include a brief summary of the text ( located in first paragraph) followed by an evaluation of that text as a useful and/or effective document for research writing. You will need to conclude the first paragraph with a thesis statement making an evaluative claim about the article.
In general, an evaluation of a scholarly source should offer an informed assessment of the text’s effectiveness based on its stated or assumed purpose. The writer should include evidence of careful reading and note taking in a very brief summary of the text and a thorough review and assessment of the content of the article and the author’s rhetorical strategies used to present it.
The brief summary should identify the thesis statement, claim, or main idea of the text, evidence and key points to support the claim, and a description of the author’s purpose, tone, and style. The summary should also identify the primary audience(s) of the text. This should be no more than 1/2 a page in length.
